Sorry Pat, can't read XL files on my box, no MS Office (it's against my religion!)

Thanks, interesting format! 8-)

Both man and machine agree, it's no pushover, shall we say medium-hard?

    did you mean to imply that your "relatively easy"
    is easier than the example i posted?

i detest everything from Microsoft,
and use it reluctantly

the format was what could be done in Excel;
OpenOffice can read the XLSx

No, not at all, I think it's definitely harder - I actually mistranslated your example, forgetting the bottom right corner was not a blank, and got a harder puzzle.

Now that I've corrected it, it seems to be solvable without doing DFS, ie. all cells can be set by direct implication. So it's probably at most "medium", say 2-3 on a scale of 5.

(on MS: agree totally, with the single exception of VB6, the only thing that keeps me running Windows!)
